Publisher The Arcade Crew along with developer Hibernian Workshop has announced the release date of their Lovecraftian Action RPG, Dark Devotion, with a gameplay overview/trailer. Dark Devotion is an adventure set within a grim, mysterious temple teeming with dangerous secrets. The game arrives on April 25 on PC via Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle for $19.99. The game is also slated for consoles at a later date and given the type of gameplay, we hope the Switch is on that console list!
In Dark Devotion you play a templar whose making her way through a temple. The game looks to be a nostalgic “Castlevania-like” sidescrolling adventure game. Enduring the temple’s trials will require reflexes, a sense of when to dodge and block, vertical movement via platform jumping, etc. The threats, explored in the above video, are only a sampling of the horrors lying ahead. Dark Devotion also allows for varied use of several different weapon types including ranged and many different melee types including sword & board as well as two-handed.
